“What controls the probability distribution of local wave activity in the midlatitudes?” C. Valva, N. Nakamura; 2021; JGR Atmospheres (in press)
This paper came (in most part) from my undergraduate thesis, which discussed the controls on distributions of local wave activity (a measure of the meandering of the jetstream) as well as the relation between local wave activity and weather variables. It can be found here.
A copy of my (expository) paper on geodesic flow and manifolds of negative curvature is here. It concludes with a proof that geodesic flow on surfaces of negative curvature is ergodic. I completed this work during the 2019 Mathematics REU at the University of Chicago.
